Watch some indie-punk Canucks dyin’ on the inside.
You could argue that punk is inherently unambitious music, but hardcore sextet Fucked Up’s recent expansive rock opera, “David Comes to Life," convincingly argues that it can aim high. Watch as David and his gal pal, Veronica, get stalked by a creepy-looking Mad Hatter-in-real-life character while the band walks around on railroad tracks all hipster-like. The track’s called “The Other Shoe.”
Check out the album’s first video, “Queen of Hearts,” for further viewing/listening. “David Comes to Life” is probably going to wind up near the top of most folks’ best-of lists this year, I’m thinking.
